Evening exercise or fantasy trip. You can partake physically or imagine the instructions. Don’t forget to save your work. There’s lots of room in the attic.

Imagine your life without the things you are grateful for before you write or fantasize. That should definitely boost your gratitude barometer.

Gratitude Jar

The gratitude jar is a stunningly simple exercise that can have profound effects on your well-being and your outlook on life. It only requires a few ingredients: a jar (a box can also work); a ribbon, stickers, glitter, or whatever else you like to decorate the jar; paper and a pen or pencil for writing your gratitude notes; and gratitude!

Step 1: Find a jar or box.

Step 2: Adorn the jar with your decorating implements. You can tie a ribbon around the jar’s neck, put stickers on the sides, use clear glue and glitter to make it sparkle, paint it, or do whatever else you can think of to make it a bright and happy sight!

Step 3: This is the final, most important step, which we will repeat daily. Think of at least three things throughout your day that you are grateful for. It can be something as benign as a coffee at your favorite coffee shop or as grand as the love of your significant other or dear friend. Do this daily, write what you are grateful for on little slips of paper (bonus points for colored paper!), and fill the jar.

Over time, you will find you have a jar full of reasons to be thankful, and if you are ever feeling especially down and need a quick pick-me-up, take a few notes out of the jar to remind yourself of what is good in your life.
